    1. Create Calibration order-T code:IW31/IW32

    Pre-requisite:

    a. Create equipment as Finished goods

    b. Create sampling procedure

    c. Create master inspection characteristics

    d. Create general/equipment task list as per the requirement

    2. Execution of maintenance plan u2013 dead line monitoring of the Maintenance Plan-T code:IP30

    3. Perform Calibration inspection-T code:QA32

    4. Close / Change Calibration order-T code:IW32

    Hi,

    Its not compulsory that it is managed by PM persons.starting for master data creation you may require PM guy but it can be managed by you also.once for all test equipments maintenance plan is generated after that u just schedule and monitor rest is Inspection process only.

    Please follow the following prcoess flow(assuming test equipment(IE01) and master data created)

    IA05- Create General Task list(Enter inspection point :300,operation,inspection charactertics to the operation,usage)

    IP01-Create maintenance plan( Use maintenace startegy of plant,enter equipment, select general task list for plan the equipment,enter call horizon,planning cycle schduling period)

    IP10-Schedule the plan Schedule the plan for the quantity with frequency defined in the plan.Which schdule the according to the schdule date.Schedule date generates pm order for the plan on due date.

    IW33-Display order.

    QE51-Calibration result recording for equipment- Gives status for result i.e ok or not ok.

    QA11-Lot usage decision

    IW41-Confirmation for the order.

    You can create a maintenance strategy(IP11) for the calibration of equipment mean to say in what frequency calibaration is carried out either monthly,weekly or yearly.

    Assign this strategy to the task list.after that follow the process steps as explained.

    Once scheduling is carried out in IP10,according to the strategy maintained in task list,system will generate maintenance calls.for example if calibration is carried out monthly and scheduling is done for the period of 12 months,system will generate 12 maintenance calls.once first call is finished do deadline monitoring(iw38),system will automatically created maintenance order for the second call.

    Calibration flow almost follows the preventive maintenance cycle except inspection point is assigned in task list.

    Please let us know if you have any query

    Hope it helps
